New-generation waterproof suit for off-road and touring use released, and it looks like a winner…
BMW have just introduced the new EnduroGuard Adventure Suit which targets the ever growing GS market. The new suit is made in cooperation with Schoeller Textil AG (Switzerland) and it’s available in different sizes for men and women and also features a newly designed dedicated pair of gloves.
The EnduroGuard is not a replacement for the already hugely popular and perfectly functional Rally and GS Dry suits, which are to remain available at BMW Motorrad dealers.
The new suit comes with subtle branding, large ventilation parts, 3-layer laminate BMW Climate Membrane and a waterproof storm hood integrated into the collar.
The Price. Manufacturer’s recommended price Germany: Jacket € 1049, trousers € 749.
As with everything though the price will vary between retail outlets, so make sure to ask around – one source is already reporting getting quoted €750 for the jacket + €561 for the trousers. I am sure you will agree that that is a considerable saving!

I have never been fortunate enough to own a BMW Suit (BMW – if you are listening and would like to send me a suit to review ;-p ), I do own a couple of pairs of StreetGuard 2 Trousers which are outstanding. (I have written about them previously a few times) Going by the quality that I know and expect of BMW Motorrad clothing I can safely assume that this suit will be another outstanding addition to the range, and no doubt will become the choice of the wealthy GS Riders across the globe.
